Dr. Frances Filgas, MD
A long time Sonoma County resident, Age Management clinician Dr. F. Dee Filgas has an extensive Circum Vitae spanning over 30 years in the medical field. She specializes in medical weight management and bioidentical hormones for both men and women, along with numerous aesthetic services to complement the myriad of treatments now helping many baby boomers transition easily into their golden years. Age Management Medicine is the prevention of chronic disease.Through proper hormonal, metabolic, exercise, lifestyle and nutritional interventions she guides you down that path so you too, may experience good health. Dr. Filgas finished her university training in biochemistry cum laude at the University of Maine in Orono in 1972. She subsequently entered the Master's program in Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, but was accepted into the medical school at the University of California, Davis before completing her M.P.H. At Davis, she completed her M.D. in June 1979. Subsequently she entered and completed her internship through the University of California, San Francisco. Her emphasis in training was in Critical Care, and she began practicing Emergency Medicine in 1980, becoming Board Certified in April 1994. She practiced Emergency Medicine in a number of locations but primarily at St. Helena Hospital in Deer Park, California. In 1988 she pioneered the Job Care program in Occupational Medicine at St. Helena Hospital. It later became a model for that program throughout Adventist Health Systems West. She acted as the medical consultant for State Compensation Insurance Fund September 1990 through 1991. She began collaborating with the Spine Care Medical Group, subsequently practicing Orthopedic Medicine, and ultimately became interested in Pain Management. She became certified by exam with the American Academy of Pain Management in 2006. In the course of practicing pain management, she realized that there are hormonal and metabolic issues which normally become prevalent in mid-life. This led her into the realm of Age Management where prevention of chronic disease through proper hormonal, metabolic, exercise, lifestyle and nutritional interventions become the concern of the clinician

Windsor, Ca |
She is all about money, not her patients. It's all about what she can make from them, not what she can do for them. It's sad at one point I thought she became a doctor and took an oath for the greater good of the people but take her on as your doctor and you'll learn otherwise. She will not do one thing to make sure you have what you need, put her out there will be a fee. Ask in advance!!!
